10:54 - Turchia


(ICE) - ROMA, 14 MAR - The Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD) has revised up its estimate for Turkey’s economic growth in its global economic outlook. In the interim OECD Economic Outlook, which was released on March 13, Turkey is estimated to have grown at 6.9 percent in 2017. In the organization’s previous report in November 2017, Turkey’s economic growth was estimated to exceed 6 percent in 2017, driven by strong fiscal stimulus and an export market recovery. Turkey’s GDP is expected to rise by 5.3 percent for 2018 and 5.1 percent for 2019, from 4.9 percent and 4.7 percent respectively. “Growth in Turkey is projected to moderate from the exceptionally rapid pace seen in 2017 as government stimulus measures fade, but could remain at around 5 percent over 2018-19 given strong labour force growth and improved external demand,” the OECD stated. The global growth rate is estimated to have risen by 3.7 percent in 2017, the strongest in the last seven years, the OECD announced, mainly driven by a robust outlook among G-20 countries. “Global GDP growth is estimated to have been 3.7 percent in 2017, the strongest outcome since 2011, with positive growth surprises in the euro area, China, Turkey and Brazil,” the OECD said in a press release. The OECD also projected to rise of global GDP growth by 3.9 percent for both 2018 and 2019. The higher forecast was in part due to expectations that U.S. tax cuts would boost economic growth there, it said. In November 2017, the OECD predicted an increase of 3.6 percent for 2017 and 2019, and a rise of 3.7 percent for 2018. The OECD stressed that the world economy would continue to strengthen in 2018 and 2019. “Growth in the U.S., Germany, France, Mexico, Turkey and South Africa is projected to be significantly more robust than previously anticipated, with smaller upward revisions in most other G-20 economies,” it added.
